NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — The price of Girl Scout cookies is not rising in Middle Tennessee, according to the local branch of the organization.

Recent reports indicated cookie prices would be rising, some as high as $6 per box in some areas, but Girl Scouts of Middle Tennessee says the price increase will not affect local cookie prices.

“We hope that the recent news article does not confused our marketplace, as this does not impact our 39 counties,” said Emily Thomas, Communications Manager with Girls Scouts of Middle Tennessee (GSMTN).
